I was pulled over for going 71 in a 70 mph zone on southbound I-79 between Canonsburg and Waynesburg. The officer issued me a ticket for title 75, section 3111, subsection a. I think $170 for 1 mile over is a bit extreme. I am trying to decide if I should contest this ticket or not.
You should speak with a lawyer in your area familiar with traffic offenses. Depending on the timing device used and assuming this is not in a work zone, you typically cannot be convicted unless the speed recorded is six or more miles per hour in excess of the legal speed limit. Good luck.
You should always consult an attorney for advice regarding your individual situation and this general information is not provided to nor does it create an attorney-client relationship.
Its about the points less than five miles over is not points.
Specific legal advice can only be given with full knowledge of all of the facts and circumstances of your situation. Posting a question on this website does not create an attorney-client relationship. All questions you post will be available to the public; do not include confidential information in your question.
It would be difficult for you to get that ticket dismissed. As my colleague explained there are defenses that may work, but consulting and hiring a lawyer may cost more than $170.
The answer above is not intended to be legal advice. No attorney-client relationship is intended to be formed by providing the general information. Please consider consulting an attorney licensed to practice in your state for legal advice specific and appropriate to your situation.
